Wow. I just cannot get over how well this school year is going. I am enjoying every day so much. I stay so busy during the week that I haven't had much time to blog, other than the weekends, but that's okay too.
I've been working on my mondo cable sweater, so I can wear it to Rhinebeck. I finished one sleeve and am half way through the other, so I tried it on last night. The "finished" sleeve is too short, so I'm going to lengthen it after I finish the second one. The bottom edge of the body curls up more than I like, but I'm hoping blocking will fix it. Anyone have any ideas about that plan?
I forgot to show this cute pincushion that Mere made for me. Isn't it adorable?
Even though we had the equivalent of a monsoon for two days this past week, with a total of 7 inches of rainfall in 24 hours, today is a gorgeous, fall Saturday. Steve and I went out for breakfast and ran a few errands, and now he's off to the garden store for soil and I'm going to do a little housekeeping. The windows are open, the music is on, and life is good here by the bay.
Wanted to share an updated photo of my "nature table", the ledge under my kitchen window where I like to display my beach finds.
Exciting weigh-in news! I lost 4 pounds this week, which brings me to a grand total of 23.6 lbs in 8 weeks. I'm really enjoying the experience of wearing "new" clothes that have been packed away. And I just noticed this morning that my hips and joints haven't been hurting much lately either, which was one of my reasons for losing weight. Yippee!!
